When following the recommended dosage on your weight loss pill, you’re unlikely to experience side effects.
Per FDA regulations, weight loss pills must contain ingredients and dosages that are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS). The FDA has verified that these ingredients and dosages are unlikely to cause adverse side effects when taken as directed.
However, all supplements have the chance to lead to minor side effects, including:
- Upset stomach and other digestive issues
- Jitters, anxiety, and nervousness
You can reduce the risk of side effects by checking the ingredients label. For example, if you’re sensitive to caffeine, you should avoid weight loss pills containing caffeine.
If you have a medical condition or are taking medication, talk to your doctor before taking weight loss pills or other supplements.
